The tracing of a net like VSS/VCC/VDD can take some time because these are pretty large and contain many shapes/paths etc.
After starting the trace of such power net, the 'cancel' button in Klayout is very handy since I don't have to wait minutes or hours for it to finish, as it happens on other design tools.
I'm trying now to use the NetTracer to get the multiple traces of every contact in a certain selected area. Of course some of the contacts in this area are tied to power net. So the program gets 'stuck' waiting for the tracing of the large nets to finish.
My question: is it possible to limit the amount of shapes being traced by NetTracer? if not, can I put a timeout on the NetTracer?
